Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A name formerly applied to one, and probably to several, of the ruminant quadrupeds of eastern Africa, etc., now known as gazels and antelopes. It is variously identified, some making it out to be the common gazel of Egypt, etc., Antilope dorcas or Dorcas gazella; others, the sasin or common antelope, Antilope bezoartica, a very different animal. It is more probably the first-named species, or one closely resembling it.
- n. obsolete The true gazelle.
